Common Questions and Answers about Child complaining of stomach ache


Avatar n tn My three year old son has been complaining of a belly ache with very similar complaints. It is never directed to one area of his tummy it is all over although it seems to be more in the upper left quarter when he lets me feel around and ask( which is hardly ever) He has been going on with this for almost two months, doctors ran blood and urine test found nothing. I am now looked as I am over reacting as I have been in numerous times.
Avatar f tn She is constantly complaining of a headache, stomach ache, leg cramps, and she will often run a slight fever of 99.6 - 100.5. The doctor ran a blood test and the results showed elevated potassium and a slight elevation in her blood sugar. She then ran another blood test to check her kidneys and gave her a urine test. Those results came back fine and her White Blood Cell Count was normal.
Avatar n tn Could be a candida overgrowth, do you relate to this ? the diagnosis of a virus is a catch all. post if you need more info A Special Message To The Health Professional William G. Crook M.D. Dear Colleague: Many infants and young children who come to your office are troubled by middle ear disorders. While some children may have what appears to be a mild URI, they may complain to their mothers, "my ear hurts".
Avatar n tn I still can't eat anything greasy without making my stomach turn but I am glad I can eat more than applesauce so I'm not complaining. Thank you all for you messages. Have a good day!
Avatar n tn I tell her it is okay to be afraid but there are times when we have to face our fears and when I insist she do something she is scared of we do it together. Lately she has been complaining of stomach aches. Sometimes it is an attempt to get out of doing things or eating which I think is typical of her age. Twice yesterday she sat out in class because of a stomach ache. Once in gym and the other at a listening station in school.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old has been complaining of a stomach ache off and on. It has been occuring about every 2 weeks or so. This last one has started 3 days ago and continues, and failry constant. The pain is generally located on left lower abdomen but now is in the upper abdomen between his ribs. He has atleast one-two normal bowel movements daily, but does not relieve his discomfort. I have watched his diet, but it does not appear that a specific food is causing the pain.
Avatar n tn My 14 year old daughter is experiencing a lot of stomach pain and is missing a lot of school because of it. We have been to the Dr. several times and they don't seem to know what is wrong. The pains come from know where at times and are stronger after she eats any type of foods. can someone give me any suggestions? A few years ago I was diagnosed with Crohnes Disease is it possible that she could develop it? Thank You for any suggestions or answers.
Avatar f tn SO interesting to see someone else complaining of the same thing! I have had mine for over 2 years now. I think it is related to a an injury I sustained in a motorcycle incident. It is better sometimes, really bad at others. I find it is worst when I am tense or stressed out. I have had a mammogram and am scehduled for another and ultrasound, but they have been unable to find anything.
Avatar n tn I have an 8 yr old son, who has been complaining of severe tummy, abdominal pain for about 7 weeks now.He has been to emergency twice a 3 night stay at a childrens's hospital and numerous doctors visit has not gotten us a diagnosis or relief of the pain. He has had 2 ct scans, an upper GI and numerous x-rays. The only firm conclusions from all this is that he has lymphodema mesendary (swollen lymph nodes of the appendics) and acid reflux. The pain is severe.
Avatar n tn My child often complains of stomach aches - which I can relate it to having a low. However, once in a while (since he's been diagnosed 6 years ago) he has bad pain just below his belly button and this last Saturday was the first time I've seen him bent over. Although by the time we see a dr. the pain is gone no one seems overly concerned but it's not normal. Has any one had this and what is the cause and what can we do to eliminate this happening again.
Avatar n tn James (my 2-year-old) is feeling better, and we just have to figure out what caused the allergic reaction. He does not seem stressed and is not complaining about a tummy ache anymore.
Avatar m tn While a kid can say they have a stomach ache- say to try to get out of chores or something, vomiting and diarrhea are evidencing your kid's veracity & that his body is in distress. Sometimes appendicitis I believe can start out as generalized pain. A qualified physician should palpate his abdomen and see if he/she can't find any tender areas. They may want to run a scan or ultrasound of his abdomen and blood & urine testing as well.
Avatar f tn I am still having stomach pain and sick to my stomach. Somedays I can't even get out of bed. My family too is sick of me complaining all the time. My doctor doesn't know what to do. I am SO upset. I take pain meds almost every day. I am tired of being sick to my stomach and having pain. I wouldn't wish this on ANYONE!
Avatar n tn ) made her have these pains. A belly ache is sometimes a symptom of depression and with proper care understanding and love easily made better. Better talk to your general practioner. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I noticed quite of few questions from other parents regarding their children with type 1 complaining of stomach aches, I would like to "add" to the list that my daughter who is 8 also complains of stomach aches at least 3 times a month. I've taken her to her regular pediatrician and the endocronologist who have made a couple of suggestions of maybe its gas or she's irregular but this is not the case. As a parent I can see its more than that. At times she is doubled over with pain.
Avatar n tn Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease. It is true that when your stomach retains its food load an excessively long time, the contents can somewhat "ferment." I also have been told that bile typically tastes sulfuric. So, I am no closer to reaching a conclusion.
Avatar n tn I agree they are overprescribed but once you have the cultures you should take one. A lot of stomach ailments from infection or parasite will not clear on their own. Most ear infections will so I do not bother with antibiotics for that anymore. I had over 50 rounds of amoxicillin as a child for this with no help. I never did get relief until they installed drains in my ears.
Avatar n tn she started just last week after vomiting in the early morning with a slight fever and then complaining of a stomach ache. There is no particular place or time she complains, sometimes she would tell me but other times I'd just see her arch her back backwards while standing up and with her hand behind her back. And her car seat is a Graco not Britax. Some of the suggestions and postings sound scary...but good to know....thanks! please post any results that you might have.

Avatar n tn He doesnt cry but does scream for a second and gets back to playing. For the last 15 days, he has been complaining of this ache for about 5-6 times a day. There is no change in his behavior. He is very playful and alert like usual and has shown no physical or mental changes. My wife is super worried now that his cough and cold is over with.
Avatar n tn It is normal, in fact, if you get a stomach virus/food poisoning and don't throw up, that is abnormal because it's your body's way of getting rid of toxins. Honestly, I had a stomach virus (BAD) the first week of February and I felt the same way, "oh man, I am throwing up so hard I'm going to die." But I just kept telling myself after that thought that "no, you won't die - it's normal, it sucks, but it's normal and I'm just going to open my mouth and let it come." Yuck.
Avatar f tn I wish someone would of warned me. Why don't they teach this at school . LoL Okay I'll stop complaining hehe!!
Avatar n tn I was just doing a google search about leg pain in children because my 2 year old daughter has been complaining of pain in her legs, knees, feet and sometimes ever her arms and hands for quite some time now. I scheduled her an appointment to see the Dr. because she has been having recurring fevers recently as well. I am not sure that they are related to the pains, but to be safe we wanted to have her checked out.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, it has been a problem my father suffered with for most of his life. I was born with Asthma so when I first started complaining of this the doctors constantly were trying to treat my Asthma, I kept telling them it wasn't my Asthma. I know what an attack feels like and this was not it. I has chest Xrays, blood tests, heart stress tests, stomach, pancreas, gall bladder scans. Apparently there is nothing wrong.
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
Avatar n tn There was a day or two of soreness of the arm, now they are having pain in the upper arm muscle and shoulder joint. Could this be related to the flu shot? What could be the cause? It is hard for them to lay on that side and becomes quite intesnse.
Avatar n tn Starting today it has also started to feel like it is on fire at times and then goes to a dull ache. Just like a few of you, I had a head injury when I was younger that required a trip to the hospital complete with x-rays. I did have a concussion, but can not recall exactly where. About three years ago I also started to get menstrual headaches and just recently started to use Treximet to control the headaches. I am now wondering if the menstrual headaches are connected.
Avatar n tn 5 (not sure of that in ferenheit) heart beating heart, flushed face eyes dilated slightly, head pain and stomach ache but no vomiting. Vertigo and nausea. Serious attacks are usually several months apart, small ones a few months apart. She also continues to have migrained but not as often since put on sandomigrain. I forgot she always has stomach pain with all this.
Avatar n tn I too am having these same symtoms, it has been a month tomorrow since I had my TIA, and I have also had more numbness, and weakness of my right arm since I was released. I too am trying to find out how long this will last, because this VERY seriously affects my job (I am on phone calls all day) The speech comes and goes for me, depending on how long I have been talking for.
